Apr 22, 1948 – Feb 21, 2019
Ronald Joseph Wobeter, 70, of Louisa County passed away Thursday, February 21, 2019 at his home.
Ron was a member of St. Jude Catholic Church and the Knights of Columbus. He grew up a farmer in Tama, Iowa. Since his retirement he spent every day working on wood projects. When it rained he would smuggle various pieces of lumber into the house to paint or stain and hide them in the bathtub, in a one bath house!
Survivors include his wife, Deborah Wobeter; children Trisha Milligan (Jay), Joseph Wobeter (Amanda), LeAnn Hill and Casey Birckhead (Michael); seven grandchildren; two brothers; and two sisters. He was preceded in death by his parents, Edward and Lilliam Wobeter.
A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. on Saturday, April 13, at St. Jude Catholic Church.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to St. Jude Catholic Church, 1937 Davis Hwy., Mineral, VA 23117.
He was a wonderful man, who always had a smile on his face, a handshake and a fist bump for the children of our parish. Our church will feel the loss for sometime to come. Prayers for all, including his soul.
Ron was your strong silent type. I will forever treasure the wooden chests he made for my family and how he used to check on dad at the hospital, whenever dad was there. Ron will be missed but never forgotten.
